Computer-controlled punch press machines are used to create holes and indents in sheet metal. As a modern metal fabrication technique, CNC punching can be used to punch circular, rectangular, or customized holes into various materials, including aluminum, galvanized steel, stainless steel, and Zintec. CNC punching may also be used to punch 3D forms used in sheet metal enclosure design.

How CNC Punching Works

CNC punch presses are controlled by computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology. The information from these computer files tells the machines how to implement the proper tooling methods. CNC punch presses move metals from the x-direction to the y-direction to ensure the materials are precisely placed under the punching ram.
